What is the betting that it will be at Goodwood Festival of Speed in two weeks time? Several options, no increase in performance and a big price hike? Come on BMW. Alcantara steering wheel, its not got the chuckability of a CSL has it?

There's already a thread about these cars buried on the forum. Not terribly impressive imo.

so a M5 M Performance edition...might as well just call it M&Ms

From what I understand, it is purely cosmetic features, and nothing in additional performance or handling. So I think the name is misleading.

I read somewhere, that the slogan "M" the most powerful letter in the world should be changed to "M" the most marketed letter in the world
